I'm a Los Angeles-based writer and independent journalist whose articles have appeared in countless newspapers from coast to coast, including the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune. Although I've spent the bulk of my 20+ years of professional writing in newsrooms as either a full-time government or investigative reporter, the issues and events I covered varied greatly, from junkie jockeys on horse tracks in the high desert of New Mexico, to the hairsprayed heads of celebrities at the Academy Awards in LA. I once ran seven miles in the icy predawn of Santa Fe with former Gov. Gary Johnson, the same fitness-obsessed pol who advocated legalizing heroin. I interviewed President G.W. Bush during his 2000 campaign on the caboose of a train as a boy on a bicycle followed close behind, riding no-handed and flipping two birds. I spent a day with famed former child actor Jerry Mathers as he pitched an IMAX movie about Beavers in Albuquerque. And I was nearly slaughtered by a septuagenarian madman when I dared to shoot photographs outside the entrance of Hunter S. Thompson's Owl Farm in Aspen (the two of us later made peace at the Woody Creek Tavern). My debut novel, "Boon," was released in Winter 2010.
